A two-day seminar was organised for all Chief Tutors and their Assistants at the Prestige Hotel in Accra, from the 10th to the 11th July, 2018. A day's seminar was also held for all Apostles and Bishops on the 12th July 2018.

The seminars were facilitated by District Elder Oehler with Bishops Eric Ampadu (retired) and Charles Asare assisting. The Lead Apostle, Samuel Opping Brenya, was in attendance and participated in all the proceedings. Also present were personnel in-charge of Seminars from the Administration Office to ensure the smooth delivery of each session.
 
The topics treated were based on the role of Rectors and Youth Care as well as a discussion on the state of the Sunday School and Confirmation Class in all of the Apostle areas. The participants were involved in role plays on the various topics learnt to the understanding and satisfaction of all.

In the evening of Wednesday, 11th July 2018, all the Apostles and Bishops accompanied the Lead Apostle for a divine service at the Taifa congregation (Accra West District).

The Divine Service was based on the text from Matthew 9: 37 – 38. The Lead Apostle spoke against situations where people deliberately refuse to work in the house of God because they do not receive monetary reward. He clarified that the expression ‘labourers in the House of Lord’ does not only refer to church ministers and that all the members who attend church are labourers in the Lord’s work. He further advised that any labourer who is arrogant and not worried about any lost soul is a bad labourer.


After the service, Apostle Ohene-Saffo (Accra Area Apostle) thanked the Lead Apostle for his visit and wished him long life and good health as the day also marked his birthday.
